this kid at my school is constantly beating me at competitive singles
like, i spend all night reviewing techniques and training each pokemon with the best fucking movesets, items, natures, abilities, fucking EVERYTHING
but still, he manages to beat me by spamming op attacks with mega garchomp, charizard, shit like that
my team atm is: blissey, carbink, xerneas, mewtwo (x), lucario and zygarde
i realise zygarde has a lower potential than, say, garchomp, but since he uses it so often, i don't want to look like a copier or something

so i'm asking for a bit of help so i can finally win at least one game with this guy... i've been thinking maybe mega aggron would be a decent choice at this point? it looks pretty bulky and i'm in need of a good steel type

do you guys have any suggestions? i'm trying to stay away from the popular pokemon that people would expect in a battle
User avatar #530490 to #530453 - shedinja (11/08/2013) [-]
Just going to point this out

>using carbink
>when shuckle is in the game

>using zygarde
>ever
also you don't have to use garchomp, haxorus and salamence are in both versions
User avatar #530637 to #530490 - octavia (11/08/2013) [-]
>not realizing Zygarde is a good pokemon that won't be Ubers
User avatar #530661 to #530637 - shedinja (11/08/2013) [-]
Nigga, zygarde is shit

coil and dragon dance are literally the only things setting it apart from garchomp
User avatar #530664 to #530661 - octavia (11/08/2013) [-]
It also has better bulk than Hippowdon and access to Extreme Speed.
User avatar #530499 to #530490 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
Carbink is better because Shuckle has fuck all for health.
User avatar #530494 to #530490 - whiteniggers (11/08/2013) [-]
i've been told that carbink's stupidly high defense and fairy typing was just overall overpowered... also it looks pretty

would shuckle and salamence be better than carbink and zygarde then?
User avatar #530503 to #530494 - alicorn (11/08/2013) [-]
shuckle has 20/230/230 defenses carbink has 50/150/150
the 30 extra in HP doesn't seem worth it when shuckle gets power split
carbink does get stealth rocks which only 5th gen shuckle currently have so keep that in mind

if you use salamence be aware it is weak to rocks and garchomp usually carries stone edge, haxorus might be a better choice
User avatar #530515 to #530503 - totodigatr (11/08/2013) [-]
Base 50 HP is 304 when EV trained and perfect IVs, base 30 is 264 in the same situation.
User avatar #530513 to #530503 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
Salamence outspeeds Garchomp (especially Mega) and OHKOs with dragon moves.
User avatar #530508 to #530503 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
Power Split is useless competitively.
User avatar #530518 to #530508 - alicorn (11/08/2013) [-]
Try it with acupressure/rest/rollout
User avatar #530521 to #530518 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
It still sucks.
User avatar #530506 to #530503 - whiteniggers (11/08/2013) [-]
haxorus looks better too imo which is always a necessity

thanks for the info, i'll update the board when i've worked on a better teamset
User avatar #530501 to #530494 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
No, Shuckle is shit. Keep Carbink if you need a wall.
User avatar #530502 to #530501 - whiteniggers (11/08/2013) [-]
my wall has been blissey because of it's hp and hp restoration...
so... blissey, carbink or something completely different?
User avatar #530505 to #530502 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
Blissey can`t take a physical punch, so you could keep carbink as a physical wall/lead with rapid spin and Stealth Rocks.
User avatar #530486 to #530453 - gagster (11/08/2013) [-]
Get better at predicting him, get a more unique moveset he wont expect. Get max IVs.Get pokemon that actually synergies together instead of just random pokes. Use substitute and protect to your advantage. Use Battle items that help overcome a pokes weaknesses. Set up hazards. Start using a wall.Get Better at playing the game.
User avatar #530481 to #530453 - aceshot (11/08/2013) [-]
the fact that he is using mega evolves or legendaries in the first place is pretty cheap. Who thinks they're good for using pokemon with altogether higher base stats?
User avatar #530483 to #530481 - pickaxe ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
quite a lot of people,sadly.I once had a buddy in school,who I just found out,plays pokémon as well.Of course,the first time we fight,it's a mono team against legendaries.Took only a day to get him to cut out his shit,though.
younger kids are especially suspectable to this.I've seen far too many kids brag about how good they are at using overpowered characters,It's usually the "I never loose" argument
User avatar #530485 to #530483 - aceshot (11/08/2013) [-]
I dont so much hate mega evolves, because its only one per battle, and considering i use mega ampharos, id be a hypocrite. But to use pokemon whos base stats are inherently higher in every category, does not dictate that the user is in any way skillful. But unfortunately kids who use legendaries, like whiteniggers friend, rarely change, cause they never see the unfair advantage they have by using them.
User avatar #530496 to #530485 - pickaxe ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
I thought they'd break the game as well,but the one per battle-rule balances it out,i guess. mega gengar is my resident sweeper,I'm not a hypocrite .

You can talk sense into them,they usually don't even realise that they're using overpowered stuff,not consciously at least.Had this with a number of beat-em-ups,and this or that pokémon battle.

User avatar #530487 to #530485 - aceshot (11/08/2013) [-]
or even worse, they use legendaries because they know how overpowered they are.
User avatar #530479 to #530453 - volero ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
Gardevoir can destory Mega Charizard X, Garchomp, Lucario, and Gyrados if you taught it Thunderbolt.
User avatar #530459 to #530453 - pickaxe ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
any insight on his team/strategy/type preference?
also,lucario mewtwo and xerneas are among the most overused pokèmon of the current online mode
User avatar #530462 to #530459 - whiteniggers (11/08/2013) [-]
He seems to always go first... no matter how high the speed is on my team, he'll manage to go first

he tends to withstand most attacks and then use a powerful attack with no setbacks (takes one turn, almost always perfect accuracy, etc) until all of my pokemon are down

pokemon he uses is down there
User avatar #530475 to #530462 - pickaxe ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
do some EV training,either get some good walls/sweepers ,you seem to want tanks though...
I usually send my gengarmodest EV:speed,SP attack out against some of these threats.It's okay against garchomp in non-mega form,not good,but decent,and pretrty much one hits mewtwo Y,while having an edge over most abomasnow,due to its' poison typing and speed.
Chandelure could do too,but you'll have to be careful,since it's rather slow.

blissey sounds okay,I guess,good wall.

Also,you might try entry hazards
User avatar #530464 to #530462 - stigus ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
you have ev trained right and have you checked the iv's to make sure they are good?
User avatar #530467 to #530464 - whiteniggers (11/08/2013) [-]
i'm really confused about ev training, and so is the guy i'm against
but the iv's are all the best i can do. i breed every pokemon until the best nature works for the pokemon, and manually train them so i don't miss any good moves
User avatar #530468 to #530467 - stigus ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
Iv's and ev can decide the entire battle. i highly recommend you look deep into this and try to get pokemon with at least 20 iv in speed and the attack stat the pokemon uses.

here is an explanation

User avatar #530491 to #530489 - stigus ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
well some of the moves you made didn't make too much sense. like when you changed out zygsagade instead of just finishing my houndoom with exstremspeed. so you should look into that as well as iv's and ev's
User avatar #530493 to #530491 - whiteniggers (11/08/2013) [-]
oh wow yeah looking back at that, that would have been logical

User avatar #530460 to #530456 - whiteniggers (11/08/2013) [-]

Mega Lucario
Mega Gyarados
Mega Mewtwo Y

chandelure sounds like a good idea... one of my favourite pokemon too

can you think of a decent moveset that won't fuck up too much
User avatar #530466 to #530463 - bouncykirby (11/08/2013) [-]
Sub
Fire blast/Flamethrower
Shadow ball
Energy ball

i guess
User avatar #536345 to #530466 - whiteniggers (11/13/2013) [-]
I got a fully EV Trained Shiny Chandelure sorted with the best moveset I could find.

What else would work well in a team against his pokemon? Also some good synergy with Chandelure would be cool in case of double or triple battles
User avatar #530465 to #530463 - stigus ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
the move set i use

Chandelure | Infiltrator | Modest Nature | Life orb
shadow ball | Flamethrower | Will-O-Wisp | Energy Ball

if you want an infiltrator i can trade you one

Basically, if someone puts a Pokemon up for trade, they put which pokemon they want in return, and no one can send them anything else but what they want.

It's like wanting trade Haunter for Haunter, but putting Gengar as the Pokemon you want.

Anyone else find it exceedingly annoying that using Battle Spot to battle online is 3v3 instead of 6v6, and that they scale pokemon down to 50 but don't scale them up to 50?   
   
I just tried it for the first time last night after having finished training my team and I noticed those things, saw three people in a row running Xerneas/Mewtwo/Yveltal (as they're not banned in free play), and went "Nope, nope, I'm done."

User avatar #530337 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
wouldn't it be cool if there was ability that let you switched out after you made a nonstatus move? or an ability that let you switch out after an attacking move?

call it Hit n' Run

put it on a slower or decent speed stat pokemon so it isn't overpowered.
User avatar #530474 to #530337 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
U-turn, Volt Switch, and Parting Remark all do that.

U-turn does physical damage and then returns to its pokeball, Volt Switch does it with Special, and Parting Remark lowers Attack and Special Attack and then switches.
User avatar #530514 to #530474 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
Yeah I wasn't talking about a move. I'm smart enough to know about those. I'm talking about an ability that does it for attacks AND/OR non-attack moves / status moves
User avatar #530520 to #530514 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
That's retarded.
User avatar #530523 to #530520 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
It's better than giving Drought to Ninetailes and Drizzle to Politoed. They fucked up so bad they had to change how weather works because of it.
User avatar #530527 to #530523 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
No, what I mean is that your ability is retarded. "Oh, I could sweep the entire team! Nope, switched out"
User avatar #530531 to #530527 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
how? it would be for strategic purposes, mainly being fodder or a stat and run.. and you don't normally sweep a team with one pokemon unless you are facing a retard.. course you could regulate it with putting it on a shit tier pokemon.. but it'd make a shit tier pokemon usable in higher tiers merely cause of the ability....
User avatar #530534 to #530531 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
No, because normal scouting moves like U-turn are better than that. Like, a lot better.
User avatar #530547 to #530534 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
omg are you fucking stupid? it would be giving a normally shitty pokemon a decent ability.. AND IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE WITH JUST ATTACKING EITHER. fuck are you challenged?

they could do eq, making up for their shit attack, and still switch out.. but that wouldn't be the point of the ability at all. it'd be more of using attacks and status moves that are detrimental to your opponent while getting a free switch... so like t-wave and switch to serene grace pokemon.. or lowering attack with a move like psychic, bubblebeam, constrict, and the like.. or mean looking and switching to other pokemon...

more strategic value than just u-turn. you could also regulate the movesets of the pokemon so it isn't overpowered.. like mean look and switching would be rigged... things like that...

do you understand or do you just not know anything about the metagame?
User avatar #530575 to #530547 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
The ability is hardly ever what keeps pokemon in lower tiers other than a namely 3 (Archeops, Regigigas, and Slaking), and it's not that big of an advantage.
It's clear that you know nothing about the game yourself, as the pokemon with Serene Grace all have Thunderwave, and switching out after using Mean Look cancels the effects you fucking moron.
The same things can be used with U-turn, and switching out after KOing a pokemon isn't good either, because they still get the opportunity to choose the matchup, because the switching comes first. Fuck off with this stupid crap, you obviously know nothing about the game so stop acting like you know the metagame like the back of your filthy hand you thick skulled shitbrain.
User avatar #530579 to #530575 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
Ok bby.
That's why I was in the top #50 on smogon for the ou tier.
whatever you say babe.
I won't argue
User avatar #530581 to #530579 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
You don't know anything. Saying that you're in the top 50 for smogon is also retarded, because people who play in smogon leagues just copy/paste the top 6 pokemon onto their own teams and do nothing else other than do exactly what the smogon page says. It takes literally no skill to be good in smogon.
User avatar #530555 to #530547 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
*but it would be just for status / non attack moves or just attacking moves...
get it?
so you could still attack a shit load and not switch out.. but then you do a status move and you switch...

DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
User avatar #530578 to #530555 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
It's not good for anything other than scouting. It's shit. You're shit. And you know nothing about the game.

le sneaky pebbles
User avatar #530342 to #530337 - pickaxe ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]
nah,it would break cooldown,or stat. loss moves,also it would be pretty annoying if it came up every time you attack.
But I think one that keeps stat changes when switching out would work.Like Baton pass,but as an ability.
User avatar #530528 to #530342 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
ah true. but what if you gave the ability to only pokemon that didn't have moves like that?

your idea is pretty cool tho. i just said it as an idea seeing as that there aren't a good amount of switch out/in abilities... and it'd change up the metagame a bit.

So I'm battling Golurk and Banette for Attack in Gen V, but my Arcanine is still only getting 1-2 EVs per battle at level 30.

Is his growth just that bad, or am I doing something wrong?

Did the same thing with my Alakazam in Celestial Tower and he's almost at 400 special attack.

Each pokemon gives only 1-3 EVs per battle in a particular stat. And that EV is set, so Banette gives 2 EVs per battle while Golurk only gives you one.

What do you think the age limit should be to stop playing Pokemon?

I keep running into this one guy whom I always see Jogging. Every time he sees my Light Blue 3DS in my hand he starts getting wet. Soon he changes course and starts jogging slowly in the direction I am going asking me questions like "so what is your favorite pokemanz mine is Pikablue"

I have so little patience for this but I make sure not to yell at him because I just give him simple one word answers until he eventually jogs backwards all the way home.

what do you think guys?
User avatar #530353 to #530311 - RisenLichen ONLINE (11/08/2013) [-]

Also it's probably safe to assume that if he doesn't approach you each time drenched in childs blood and rockin' a massive erection, that he means no harm.

As for what age you should be to give up playing/having an interest in pokemon,
I'd have to agree win Ren.

The poor guy probably just loves pokemon and doesn't get to talk about it all that often with real people. Unless he's a total creeper, why not humor him at least? or are you just more of an introvert in general? it's cool if you are.
